Lejla is a Director of Product at Tovala, a food and tech start-up in Chicago. She previously held various roles across Consulting, Amazon, and with an NGO abroad. She holds a BA from the University of Washington in Seattle and a MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
Lejla was first introduced to Upwardly Global in 2010 through Accenture’s pro-bono consulting arm. After completing a marketing strategy project for UpGlo, Lejla fell in love with the mission and people of the organization and decided to stay on board first as a volunteer and eventually as a San Francisco Leadership Council member. As an immigrant from Bosnia, the work UpGlo does is near and dear to Lejla’s heart and she is excited to re-join the UpGlo family now in Chicago!
